Chance holds a BS in sociology from Willamette University, an MA in sociology from DePaul University, and an MA in women’s studies from the University of Washington, where he is presently a doctoral candidate in women’s studies. Over the course of his career, Chance has designed and taught courses in world, European, and US history; modern Africa; urban studies; global studies; gender studies; and equity, justice and race.
